    Pandora Sykes is the London-based fashion features editor and Wardrobe Mistress columnist for The Sunday Times Style magazine, stylist, and founder of the style and social commentary blog, pandorasykes.com. She has no sense of direction and is unable to suspend her disbelief (she doesn't care if the apartment in Friends is rent-controlled, they would never be able to live there!), but rides a unicycle like a dream.
    There’s been quite the denim revolution as of late — it’s hard to know whether you should be cropping, lengthening, flaring, hiking up your waist, or booking a holiday to Honolulu. Jeans, you see, are unpredictable beasts. There aren’t many pairs that fit me really well, or that I end up coming back to again and again.

    My two favorite jeans are ancient pairs from Topshop, rather than designer duds. My new favorite pair is pictured here: denim for dorks. Cropped, slightly flared, and showing just the neatest sliver of bare ankle. I like to pair the silhouette with a cropped jacket like this Tommy Hilfiger one, which is quite the opposite of what I normally go for in a jacket.

    Click through the slideshow for the best denim picks that are just the right amount of dorky.
